A lovely showroom for their unique and beautiful lighting fixtures and art glass. Visitors can watch glass being blown and shaped in the workshop. The glass artists were very friendly and explained what they were working on and answered our questions.

The Wimberley Glass Works makes gorgeous glass of all kinds. When you visit the showroom you can watch the workers actually making the class! This was so interesting! Then you can browse all the glass objects that have already made that are displayed in an upscale, neat showroom.

We've been here twice now and loved it both times. The glasswork is really out of this world. The glassblowing demonstrations are a special treat. Beautiful in every way.

This place is very interesting if you can watch one of their demos of how glass is blown. They have a studio with seating to watch the work being done. I have several pieces of their work in my home. It does cost a bit more but it is a work of art.

Impressive photos of corporate projects line the walls just before the oven viewing area. Glass facts are posted to educate viewers to the process. The glass handlers are skilled &... More

We stopped because I love glass. The glass on display is a delight for your eyes. The pieces are works of art. If you are looking for a showpiece this is the place. The studio itself is not that big but all the pieces are beautifully displayed. Of course you must make time to see the glass blowers create these... More

Came here to see the art of glass blowing and it was excellent. The 3 person team helped each other in the intense heat and technique of creating beautiful works pf art in blown glass. It was March and not very hot but I commented on how they were not even sweating. One of the artisans explained that in the... More

You just need to visit Wimberley and everything there. It is beautiful. Try the Wimberley Cafe for Friday Catfish special.
